We all LOVE Views, but one thing that is not easy to do with Views is to present results in the form of charts and graphs. Have you ever wanted to show a pie-chart of most common terms in your system? How about designing a multi-part report like the "big boys" do with just couple of clicks? This presentation will talk about designing professional reports in Drupal using Views. The modules showcased in the presentation are authored by the presenter Presented by: Frank Febbraro and...

Drupal and its contributed modules provides an impressive amount of functionality without needing to write a single line of code by storing information in Drupal's database tables. Unfortunately this poses a challenge for developers wanting to stage changes between servers. This talk will address these issues by describing the problem and presenting a variety of solutions as well as their pros and cons.

Drupal is an amazing framework. Complicated websites and web applications can be created by combining configurations of Modules, Content Types (CCK,) Views, Panels, Menus, Blocks, Categories, Roles & Permissions. This site setup and configuration process is very time consuming and repetitive. This process can and should be automated! Site configuration should also be stored in a format that is easy to read, modify, manage, & share. The Patterns Module is about solving these issues and...

Input formats and text filters are one of the scariest parts of Drupal, but also one of the most important. As "guardians at the gate," input formats let users contribute text to a site in a way that can be both easy and safe. This session will focus on what input formats are, how they work, and some of the new, exciting features in Drupal 7 that will make them work even better and enable great new functionality (WYSIWYGs in core, perhaps?).

Testing saves time, allows you to provide code-level checking for your clients' crazy requirements, documents how your code is supposed to work, frees you to refactor your code without fear of breaking things, and ensures you never get the same bug twice.

After years of avoiding classes Drupal is slowing moving toward using object-orientation in more areas, from the DB to unit testing to Views. However, many Drupal developers do not have experience with OOP design. This session will cover the concept of design patterns, both procedural and OOP, how Drupal leverages them now, and how we can better leverage OOP in Drupal without falling into common traps.

Installing and maintaining a Drupal website is a straight forward process, even if most of the work required has to be done manually. This is sufficient if you only maintain a single or small number of sites, but it starts breaking down when you maintain ten, a hundred, or even a thousand sites.

More time doing repetitive tasks while building a Drupal site means less time to push the envelope. This is a story about how we got out of this infinite loop and started spending our time more wisely in Drupal through the use of "features". This presentation will be split between a brief time-elapsed history of the problem, a step-by-step demo of packaging a feature in code, and a demo/discussion of how features and Spaces can change how you think about Drupal site architecture...

With the release of Drupal 6, phptemplate put a triumphant end to any alternative templating systems in Drupal. We've reached the holy grail of theming -- all that remains is to replace in-code theme() functions with preprocess hooks and churn out hundreds of template files, right? Not so fast. In this session I will argue that the Drupal community needs to keep its eye on the ball -- true separation of data from presentation -- and argue why there is still more underlying work to be done....
